DuPont Kevlar aramid fiber is used to make a variety of clothing, accessories, and equipment safe and cut resistant. It’s lightweight, durable and extraordinarily strong. Invented over 50 years ago, DuPont Kevlar continues to take on new challenges, with DuPont scientists continuously innovating and working on a range of new opportunities through collaborations with communities, industrial manufacturers, and governments.
FR clothing made with Nomex offers proven protection against intense heat and flame, molten metal splashes and chemical splash. And, because the heat and flame resistance is built into the Nomex fiber—it can’t be washed out or worn away. When exposed to extreme heat, Nomex undergoes a special reaction, changing its properties to capture more energy in the fabric, helping to give the wearer valuable extra seconds of protection from heat transfer.
